    Previously, we reported industry rumors suggesting that Acer may drop out of, or greatly diminish their tablet business presence, due to poor sales. Acer's company founder, Stan Shih, came forward to comment on these rumors himself. He indicated that the tablet industry has too much potential too give up on, and that they will continue to build tablets and smartphones. He also shared (as stated in the BGR article) that,

    He also reminded that Acer started off slow in the PC notebook market before becoming one of the most successful manufacturers in the world.

    Awesome, so glad they are sticking it out. Now I just wish they would fix the problem of Baltic feedback not working on my keyboard properly. I hate how to types letters twice in a row and practically dies with the option enabled. Its one of my favorite options
